Canadiens bring Bruins boos

BOSTON — Michael Cammalleri and Mathieu Darche scored in the first 2:20 to lead Montreal to a 3-1 victory over the Bruins on Saturday and give the Canadiens a 2-0 lead in their Eastern Conference quarterfinal.

Boston is 0-26 in playoff series after losing the first two games. It played without captain Zdeno Chara, who was scratched after being hospitalized overnight with dehydration.

The loss was Boston's sixth in a row in the playoffs dating to last season, which ended with four straight losses to the Flyers in the East semifinals. The Bruins were booed off the ice after the first and second periods. "Let's be honest. Our team has not played at all close to the way we can," coach Claude Julien said.

Flyers outlast Sabres

PHILADELPHIA — The Flyers held on for a 5-4 win over the Sabres to even their East quarterfinal at one in a game that had six goals, almost 30 penalty minutes and three goalies in the first period alone.

The teams finished with a combined 54 penalty minutes. "I think we did get a little bit too jacked up," Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said.

Datsyuk leads Wings

DETROIT — Pavel Datsyuk had two goals and two assists — one of the latter on a between-the-legs shot that set up a goal — and the Red Wings held on for a 4-3 win over the Coyotes to take a 2-0 lead in their West quarterfinal.

Datsyuk's trick shot in the first was saved. Darren Helm scored on the rebound. "It was a stupid thing. It worked, though," Datsyuk said. "Maybe next time, I try more easy way to score."

Ducks' Ryan suspended two games: Top-line forward Bobby Ryan was suspended for two games by the league for stomping on Predator Jonathan Blum's foot during a puck battle in Friday's 5-3 Ducks win. No penalty was called; Blum wasn't hurt. League disciplinarian Colin Campbell called Ryan's move "reckless and dangerous." Ryan will miss tonight's Game 3 and Game 4; the series is tied at one. He said he didn't agree with the ban but "I'll be a good teammate and move forward."
